  8. This is a perfect example of just why I love you so much! You are SO my kind of people! And this post is exactly the thing I needed to push the button on the confetti gun and refills that have been sitting in my amazon shopping cart for months. I'm totally going to stick a bag of confetti in my bag from now on. Thank you!
